A little respect please

Seems the Kansas City Royals have made the front page of The China Post, an English language newspaper from Taiwan. Not only do we make the front page, we're the headliners:

Royals minor leaguer suspended for drugs
Kansas City minor league outfielder Jarrod Dyson was suspended for 50 games after testing positive for an amphetamine on Saturday.

Santana, Angels agree to 4-year, US$30 mil. deal
Right-hander Ervin Santana and the Los Angeles Angels agreed to a four-year contract worth about $30 million on Saturday, a day after their scheduled arbitration hearing was postponed.

Rivera confident of rebound from shoulder surgery
The way Mariano Rivera sees it, the New York Yankees won't be looking for a closer for quite a while.

Yeah, we're a proud franchise. Even when we manage to get international attention, its for something negative. Because in light of Alex Rodriguez's confession, spring training starting all over the world, and the WBC about to kick off, it's important that a Royals minor leaguer makes the headlines in Taiwan.

Thank you, David Glass.
